That’s right folks, according to: Bloody Disgusting.
Alexander Skarsgård (Straw Dogs)… The famous actor of the, ‘Skarsgård’ brood who made his name in a major way when he starred as Eric Northman in the classic HBO series, ‘True Blood’ has been tapped to play the new, ‘Randall Flagg’ in the upcoming remake of the classic movie, ‘The Stand’!
This movie, which was an original mini-series, that was based on the classic novel by Stephen King tells the story of how a plague wipes out almost all of humanity with the exception of two groups that come together as both, ‘Good’ and, ‘Evil’… And have to do battle determine which will reign supreme on Earth!
Now Mr. Skarsgård did a great job as Eric Northman… And if he brings a darker but similiar intensity to this role… I think this one could be real good!
